Dear all,


Having had the opportunity to review the changes to Issue 4 S&D I am somewhat disappointed to see that within exclusions from Scope, the cutting and trimming of fresh produce are now included despite, as I understand it, a number of objections rasied against it at consultation stage. My food safety consultancy work is mainly with market based fruit & vegetable suppliers and this will have a major impact on them going forward.


This will mean that any market based fruit & veg suppliers (who are already currently struggling in the current Covid climate) will either  continue their (very low risk) practice of improving the quality/presentation of the vegetables by trimming the occasional leaf of a head of cauliflower and no longer have use of the BRCGS logo because of an exclusion from scope or will see an increase in rejections of product for quality reasons because customers will receive products that may not meet their specifications with regard to quality of appearance!


I've contacted BRCGS about this but would appreciate feedback from anyone else out there who is facing this issue?


Kind regards


Barbara Evans
